>> good evening, everybody. how is it going. i'm mark ibanez. bay area, are you ready? the san francisco giants are going to the world series for the fourth time since they moved here from new york. and it came as you would expect. hey, it couldn't go any other way. a one run ball game back in philly. jonathan sanchez on the mound. he did not have it going on from the get-go. chase utley with a shot to the right in the first inning. you are thinking here we go. because they add another. jason werth has been a pain to the giant's pitching staff throughout the entire series. lifting it deep? no. 2-0 philadelphia. roy oswald who won game two a
week away. shane victoriano but it rolled off his rib and hit the wall. sanchez at first base playing it cautiously as he winds up getting back. giants have runners at first and second. after a sacrifice bunt by sanchez aubrey huff with a shot up the middle. one run in but victorino has andre torres out. and buster posey with the hit. the three off of ryan howard. that allows aubrey huff to score all the way from second. we are tied 2-2. bottom of the third a bizarre turn here. jonathan sanchez 50th pitch of the night hit chase utley square in the back. he didn't appreciate it. tossed the ball back to sanchez. he took exception to that. same something to utley. he responds like what are you saying, huh? both benches wine up clearing for a couple of minutes. sanchez just completely lost his composure.
he is pulled and rightly so from the game. in comes jeremy afelt one of the un sung heros. he did a great job. shane ends that inning. sanchez watches the rest of the game from the bench. and you will see some nice defense here from jason werth. great catch down the right- field line. that's how it went. we stayed tied 2-2 into the top of the 8th inning. tim lincecum came into the game. but it is none other than juan uribe with the shot to right ticket to ride breaking the 2-2 tied. the giants leading for good 3- 2. tim lincecum, a surprise in as relief raul ibanez with the base hit. got two consecutive singles after he struck out werth to end the inning. boche has seen enough. he brings in wilson. he induces ortiz.
and victorino. and he is pumped there. he is trouble there. and in comes wilson. and ryan howard is looking. brian wilson has never come through at a more tune time. and the san francisco giants let that bubblely roll in the clubhouse as they are going to the world series against the texas rangers, game one in san francisco. as you see that 3-2 final. the giants out-hit the phillies 13-8. and the much favored phillies who have been in the world series two consecutive years prior to this are long gone. as are the yankees. fred inglis back in the sister of brotherly love. so many aspects to discuss with regard to this ball game, fred. but i tell you what, you take it from here. you talk about what you want to because back here everybody is pumped. and i put it in your hands, fred. >> well, i think this scenario has been told before. we've seen this movie before.
you get behind and you come back and you take a lead late in the game. and then you have the shutdown. the bullpen of course had a lot of angst in between the first pitch and the last pitch. but juan uribe, here is a guy who has never seen a pitch he hasn't liked. juan uribe came into this series tonight 1-11. but he got two of the team's 13 hits tonight. the 8th inning was off ryan madson. the first pitch juan uribe says he likes it. the giants take the lead for the first time. and then they managed to hold on. and juan uribe just one of many heroes tonight. >> oh, a lot of happy. a lot of happy, you know. you go to the home-plate. i am going to go to the dugout. >> we knew we had a chance. nobody ever expected us to be in the playoffs. nobody expected us to be here and to beat these guys. and to do it at home one thing.
but to do it here and fight it it is worth it now. >> you are the mvp of the nlcs. >> i can honestly say i have never imagined being in this situation right now. you always as a kid think about being the hero in the world series and things like that. but this is just so special for me right now. i will cherish it for as long as i can. >> does it feel like you anticipated this was going to be? >> absolutely. the party is just starting man. we are going to get weird tonight. >> we are going to get weird tonight says aubrey huff. look at this, though, the 7th time in the last nine years that the nlcs has been won by the team that did not have home field advantage. the giants win four games on the road so far. they are 4-7 victories have been on the road. the pitching has been stellar. effectively wild. i guess jonathan sanchez redefined that term. but with tim lincecum and
baumgarter coming in. who would have thought two starters would be part of that relief core. the giants win it. they will have some time off and so will we. back to you. >> the heroics of juan uribe i almost forgot that cody ross was the mvp. checking out the rest of the day. lots of things going on. the sharks are victorious. and stanford tries for their sixth victory of
you take a look at their quarterback andrew luck. luck with ryan waleis. and that left stanford in control. on to the second quarter 10-7 now. and taylor got the six yard burst 17-7. taylor 142 yards rushing and a couple of tds. third quarter now stanford got in control luck to baldwin. jumping over simmonses for the grab. 190 yards passing and three tds for luck. one interception. stanford wins 38-28. and the news is equally good for the cal bears hosting things at berkeley. giving their fans a little treat with the no nonsense victory. remember that guy dennis ericson former 9er coach now with the sun devils. first quarter tied three. and shane with the eight yard td catcher. wild cat formation and the
bears take the lead. and kevin riley hit marvin jones for the 52-yard td pass. the bears taking a 23-3 lead. cal leads 33-3. and chris cante comes out of nowhere un blocks the punt and takes it into the end-zone. six yards td putting the bears up 40-3. and they take half 100 there. 50-17 over arizona state rounds out the college football stuff around here. the sharks on a little bit of a roll. putting together for the first time in this young season two consecutive victories. why not, they will take it. look at the sharks goalie who is making the second straight start. a little controversy in the net. danny heatly tipping one in on the powerplay. sharks lead 2-1. powerplay again and the rebound there off
oilers goalie. it puts the sharks ahead 3-1. they coast over the oilers 6-1. the san jose quakes in a huddle. 69th minute quakes trailing 2- 1. and chris scores the league leading 18th goal of the season cut the deficit 2-1. but in the 76th minute this shot into the back corner of the net for the third goal of the game. the wizarded go on to beat the earthquakes 4-1 in kansas city. shocker here dominates in this fight. the first round he is knocked to the mat. he would not cover. he wins at the 4:10 mark of the first round. and he became the first mexican heavy weight world champion in ufc history. and he did it decisively as you saw just there. not so decisively it was another one run ball game. 3-2. but you know what, the san
